Say Yes To Reading Through Graphic Novels

Help me give my students the graphic novels we know they'll love! Let's encourage them to read what they want!

My Students

My students are the most enthusiastic, creative, and AMAZING learners ever! I teach 7th grade ELA at a Title I school with a diverse range of students, many of which are English learners. We are currently working to build our classroom library with books THEY love so they never run out of options.

There is nothing I love more than seeing my students glued to their books in their own little magical world.

Don't you love when they just HAVE to finish reading that page before they can move on with their life?

My Project

My students love hearing and watching stories, but many are not used to getting their stories through reading. Many are reluctant to read chapter books and crave a few pictures every now and then. This is where GRAPHIC NOVELS come in! I constantly have students who look through my classroom library and ask, "Do you have any new graphic novels?"

I wish my answer to this question could be "YES," every single time they ask.

Can we do it? YES, we can!

Please help me encourage these students to keep reading and immerse themselves in a world of pure imagination!
